Where is it?

For those who do not know where the Robins' Nest is it's approx. 250 miles North of Glasgow and exactly 81 miles due West of the nearest Tesco, Cinema, etc.

To get there you have to travel the longest hill in the UK sea-level to 2053 feet and back to sea-level in approx. 11 miles! The Bealach na Ba (Pass of the Cattle).

After six years here we're kind of used to it, but when I say that Andrew is going to swimming lessons every morning this week you'll appreciate what an undertaking that it is. I guess it requires a certain amount of commitment to put up with the lack of conveniences, because that's how we see the things we used to take for granted when we lived in Wandsworth, London...conveniences, not essentials!
